    Famously, ignorance of the law is no excuse, and this is normally used to justify prosecuting those who didn't know they were breaking the law.

    But it can also be used against those who try to enforce 'laws' that don't exist. You can have them for false imprisonment and indeed possibly assault. And indeed unlawful dismissal (some of the teacher stories). It might be worth trying...

    In the USA there's the ACLU; I don't know of similar organizations elsewhere but I assume they exist.

    Cheers,

The age groups were 5 and under to 15-18 years old, both boys and girls. I had a great deal of fun doing this. With all the attention paid to child predators and other unsavory folk, I don't think they take pictures of the swim meets anymore. Too bad, lots of childhood memories lost to PC.
    We're in a similar (but larger) league, and we have a couple of "semi-official" photographers. We also encourage all of the parents to take photos of their own kids and others and submit them for our (digital) slide show at the awards banquet. We even have the occasional daily/weekly newspaper photographer show up, and no one complains. A sporting event without parents carrying still/video cameras would be bizarre.

    Moose,

    You're bringing a point of sanity into this bizarre thread of rant?

    How dare you! It's like giving folks here a dose of reality treatment. Someone might have a breakdown or something worse! :o

    BTW: thanks,
